Barcelona is interested in signing Tottenham defender for £21 million

FC Barcelona is looking to re-sign Tottenham Hotspur right-back Emerson Royal, according to Mundo Deportivo and Caught Offside. There have been persistent speculations that the Brazilian defender is being linked to a transfer to AC Milan, which might lead to this possible trade.

Several Italian news sites have reported in the last week that AC Milan is close to finalizing a trade for Emerson.

The defender for Tottenham has reportedly already reached an agreement with the Rossoneri on a five-year contract, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. The Italian club is in a rush to complete the deal so the 25-year-old can start pre-season training with his new colleagues on Monday.

Although Barcelona may provide a late challenge, Mundo Deportivo has already established AC Milan as the leading candidate to sign Emerson. According to the article, Barcelona is looking into alternative possibilities as a permanent contract for Joao Cancelo could be too expensive.

Emerson Royal is one of the options they have identified, with Tottenham valuing him at £21 million. What seemed to be a simple transfer for the Brazilian right back to Milan takes an unexpected turn due to this interest from Barcelona.

Is FC Barcelona Planning to Sign Tottenham’s £21 Million Defender?

In August of 2021, Emerson Royal left Barcelona to join Tottenham Hotspur. His play with Spurs has been inconsistent at best and characterized by bursts of exceptional play. This being said big European teams have taken notice of Emerson because of his promising play.

Because of his versatility and experience in LaLiga and the Premier League, he is an asset to any team. It seems that Barcelona has noticed his development and might benefit their team since they are reevaluating his options.

A bidding battle, which may increase Emerson’s transfer cost, would be great news for Tottenham if Barcelona were interested in signing him. But Emerson’s relocation to Milan looks to be well underway, and a last-minute change of heart seems implausible.

It has been claimed that the player has reached an agreement with Milan about personal terms, suggesting his desire to join the Rossoneri. Furthermore, after allowing Emerson to depart for Spurs, it is difficult to see Barcelona re-signing him. Their original choice to break up with him would be called into doubt by this action.
